Redirect?[edit]

Is there any reason why "Urban Cohorts" and "Urban Cohort" should not redirect here? - Plasticbadge 18:23, 3 February 2007 (UTC)

Vigiles[edit]

Aren't these the same as the Vigiles? Mon Vier 22:09, 10 September 2007 (UTC)

City Cohorts[edit]

I think that the the urban cohorts were known as city cohorts in places where they had 'urbans' such as Carthage. This excludes Rome as in Rome they were known as Urbans.The Gaon (talk) 20:56, 29 March 2011 (UTC)

Hi, I'm afraid I still don't get it. "urbs" or "urbis" is "city" in Latin. So I wonder what distinction was possible between the two terms in the original. Bazuz (talk) 21:01, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
